Hibike! Euphonium is beautiful and S02E05 is best thing I experienced in my whole adventure with anime.
I can not find adequate words to describe the cruelty KyoAni encountered.

The whole incident made me reflect on the things I value and took for granted. The impact KyouAni had on anime internet culture is undeniably a big deal.

All the sweet images of K-on girls or Lucky Star reaction icons suddenly have a sting to them.

people fucking died in fire

It’s even sadder than it was, stuff like Lucky Star and K-ON was so distant but now it’s somewhat tragic along with that.

I'm a peaceful and squeamish guy. I even feel sorry for killing bugs
even so, I took an interest in the army and the navy (I'm not a yank). there's something so cool about their disciplined and hard life, how those institutions can whip people without courage, without a purpouse, a goal, or a skill into shape. it truly is a beautiful thing to behold. I like how they harden mind and body just so average joes can face the unexpected. plus you learn cool things too, from survival techniques to self-defense and trades
and hey, paying you to learn all these things is great

still, I can't even think about myself harming someone else, and that's the biggest downside. it's pretty much what they train you for, too. are there any other similar careers that teach you similar values but don't revolve around harming others? I was thinking about becoming a fireman or a park ranger. similar enough?

well, I don't think that's what I'm looking for, but your post made me think about it. what am I seeking inside the military?
guidance, a purpouse, a goal. improvement, virility, judgement, maturity, a father figure. that's what I think I'm looking for

A lot of military jobs don't involve combat and a lot of soldiers never see action, even if they've been deployed during wartime.

Armies employ medics, orderlies, cooks, HR specialists, accountants, therapists, doctors, firefighters, etc. Combat training for these people is less about getting them to kill others and more about keeping them from being killed should the worst happen.

>>5565
It sounds like you're needing something to take the wheel in your life. A lot of the problems and depression of NEET life come from having too many choices and no strong pushes in any particular direction. The structure of army life might do you a lot of good.

not so long ago I got injured while jogging and I'm in standby until my doc gives me the thumbs up
I wanna go back to jogging and taking kickboxing classes but I'll consider what you said
>>5640
not bad. nco school seems allright too
nonetheless I've done some thinking and I'm the one who's gonna take the wheel. it's for the best, I can't keep sitting around doing nothing awaiting for something to happen, or for people to command me. I have saved up courage, strength and potential that are awaiting to be used, plus I usually resent authority figures a lot. I don't think I could stand having an officer yelling at me 24/7

I'm going for the ranger career. right at the uni inscription line as we speak. not precisely the uni I wanted to go, but I'll take what I can. wish me luck :)

Park rangers (typically considered Park Superintendents) are Special Natural Resources Police Officers. They have to go through firearm training, do a small stint in the police academy and enforce laws.

It may not be the ultimatecomfyrelaxingwilderness job with discipline that you are looking for, but it is an awesome profession. Depending on what park/forest you work at you may have to deal with idiots breaking the law all day long or you may just have to make sure hunters aren't killing each other and go find a lost hiker or two once a week.

t. son of a park superintendent (who also had to go search for lost hikers @ 3am on school nights)

Farming would be an equally awesome profession without the need to hurt anyone. You have total control over your environment and can focus on a permaculture based conservation system. It will also whip your ass into shape. You won't ever forget the first time you have to go save a cow from a 3ft deep mud pool.

Do you have faith, sushi?

I have this old memory when I, as a kid, lost a precious toy. Asked God to help me find it, but to no avail. I blamed God for this misfortune and declared that I no longer believe.

Now I would say I am an agnostic, but I think I really want to find God. God, as someone to talk to, to confess to and to find support in. Lately I faced a lot of difficulties and praying helped me. I even made few liabilities, that I now struggle to accomplish.

When things go well I forget about my prayings and obligations, there is that thought that it is all my work and not some old dude above my head. Until now I went by this and it made me feel like a tiny, tiny man.

I really want to believe, but something is stopping me. Please, share something about yourself.

I was raised to be religious (basically grew up in a Lutheran church), and although I enjoy reading the bible and other religious scriptures, I mostly do it for self improvement and self belief. This helps me when I have to ignore parts that I do not agree with.

> there is that thought that it is all my work and not some old dude above my head.


Maybe you're right. After all, it was you that experienced whatever happened. You actions(be it direct or indirect) caused them to happen. take the time to appreciate your accomplishments. You decided to seek God out in order to gain some form of stability. That was your doing.

I was taught that God is all around us. In my opinion, the Holy Trinity is a good starting point. Holy Spirit is the one I connect with the most. So the wind, the tree branch, that dog you saw yesterday and our feelings/thoughts are all a part of God. I focus more on the feeling of receiving mental strength and being understood. Helps me feel empowered when I realise that everything in this world is connected. The Sushi a few posts above this one explained it better that I did. "God is the eternal rhythm of the universe, life, experience, something indescribable in words."

But at the end of the day, how you view and use the religion is up to you. As long as it benefits you I'd say that it's working. if you don't feel comfortable with where you're at, try reading up on different religions and viewpoints. Hopefully you'll gain enlightenment and peace.

But you were having a hallucination. I don't really understand how you can draw conclusions about the universe from a temporary alteration of your brain chemistry.

I'm not a religious person myself, i was an atheist materialist for some time and that fucked me up really hard, to a point i had a strange lucid dream were i was on the verge of disappearance and desintegration and i couldnt see a reason to keep living and the only thing that made sense on that moment was suicide. When i woke up it was like atheism was the most retard idea ever, and its kinda how i feel till today. I've messed up with the occult for some time after that, but it wouldn't fill my void. Tried some practices from eastern religions like islam, hinduism and buddhism to no avail.
I tried going back to my religion too, but it doesn't feel aesthetically pleasing enough, i honestly am more about aesthetics than theological solidity, which made me live in a paradox between the Catholic church that once was or that could be and a pantheon inside my own head, divine beings i can feel as if they were me in strange times and lives. All this batshit insane post just to say: go read Chesterton, he might do for you what he couldnt do for me.

>>5656
Yeah that's my holdup. A lot of people feel the same thing so it's hard to discern whether or not I actually saw god. Nonetheless, I have faith in what I experience, and believe emotion or experience to be a reflection of some truth. Not an attack on rationality, but I believe there is some value in trusting one's perceptions. Even if they don't line up 100% with reality as we can test beyond ourself, what we perceive is part of our reality.

 No.5676

I was raised by not very religious parents which didn't try to force me into believing or not believing, and after being kinda religious as a kid I ended up being an atheist (despite going to a primary school where religion was considered. We went to pray once a year and had religion lessons)
>>5660
Imo religion is not the only way to fill the void. But it works I guess
>>5675
I've always seen reality as something real, concrete, and that would exist even without me. As such my subjective view is imperfect and partially untrue: if I mistake a ball for a brick, it's still a ball. If I get hit by it I don't get hurt even if in "my reality" I would. All the fear I'd feel while seeing the brick/ball fly towards me would be a mistake, and nothing more.

Did you know that even in research there is a mainline research track trailing behind big companies or well-known names?

Researching anything else is forbidden… at least as far as your advisers are concerned. All your special track research has to be hush hush while you slowly crank out regular mainline track papers.

Eventually, you either realize your idea and decide it's not worth sharing with your community or you move on, having failed to realize your brilliant idea.

There's no winning!

めんどくさいね。。。

fuck the system, fuck hoes, smoke kush

I've done research on my own, separate from my university, because academia focuses on shit that's measurable

there's too much of an emphasis on LaTeX, abstracts, graphs in gnuplot or whatever, and other pseudointellectual shit to make your boring-ass research paper look smarter

but real research can transcend academia

I used to think academia was the be-all and end-all of education, but it's really not

autodidactism is better tbh famalam

post it on your website or github or something, ignore universities

YEET

The 944 is a great car. Good for a lot of highway driving and is set up stock as good cruiser and its pretty easy to maintain as there were a lot of them so parts are easy to get and despite not having a lot of room in the engine bay, they are pretty easy to work on so long as you dont try to race it everywhere and warp the head and valves.
They also look great and feel like you are driving a jet fighter.

I've got a 2007 toyota camry which is still in really good condition. It was previously owned by my uncle who only drove it to work and back (he also has a minivan which he used whenever they went anywhere as a family). The car was also kept in a garage for its entire life, so the paint is in really good condition. I actually just recently passed 100k miles just last month!

My dad has a new 5 series BMW, and while it's a really nice car I wouldn't recommend buying one outside of the warranty period. These cards need repairs every year and they can get very expensive very quickly. It's perfectly fine to splurge on it if you can afford it as a fun toy, but it definitely isn't a wise choice.

Theres a thread for promoting things. You would know that if you actually browse here. As usual someone comes in, plasters their poster on the biggest wall they can find, then leave.

How do you deal with pathological liars? Have you ever encountered any?

I've been lying pathologically for most of my childhood, and stopping doing so was the best change I've made in my life. I believe it passed to me from my mother, who to this day lies a lot.

However recently I've encountered a person who lies very much. It's a girl, we've got normal friendly relationships, neither of us is romantically interested or anything like that. However, for the little time we talk, I can see that she lies quite a lot.
Those lies are mostly about achievements or something similar. I don't care about them, it's just an indicator for me to not get surprised next time when she gives a different answer when we touch this topic. Something like that.

But I wonder how people deal with those. Do you call them out? Do you try to avoid the person or do you continue to communicate normally?

 No.5471

>>5470
>How do you deal with pathological liars?
If I don't really have to spend much time around them I just ignore them or tell them they're full of shit.

If I'm stuck with them like people I work with I just avoid talking to them.

Had this one kid in school who was one. Mostly just made fun of him, tho he was a friend; banter I guess. Said his Father was a millionaire , he said he bought him self a Jag at age 14 for when he was 17, things of that nature, along the lines of materialism. Mostly he liked being the center of attention (maybe why he didn't mind the jokes), when a good friend of mine was in trouble with the law, he was spreading and talking about it to people who really didn't need to know. I was not keen on him post that.

Depends on how you know, and interact with the person. If you can't joke about it then that person is better being cut off.

 No.5488

I encourage it, in a way. I don't call them on their bullshit, but I let them tell me their ridiculous stories and tell them I believe them. I try to make them say the most ridiculous shit possible because I know they will embarrass themselves real bad at some point. I don't need to be the one making it happen.

 No.5489

I've only met one true pathological liar, and it was a girl from school. We were kids, so nothing of importance was ever discussed. She would just make stories up constantly. I never had a problem with it, and I would listen to the bullshit she had to say, but I wouldn't ever consider being friends with someone like that.
